Our Annual Family Road Trip

We have begun a family tradition of taking a long road trip every year.  Last year we took an amazing trip up north and this year we repeated that journey with a few adjustments here and there.  One thing we realized after this past vacation is that during her toddler years, Baby Bear prefers to stay put in one place for a few days.  Last year, we went from city to city and because she was younger and spent so much time either in my arms or in a stroller, all of the movement didn’t bother her.  This year, however, that kind of movement was a little bit tiring for her since she’s not in the stroller as often or being carried as much.  We’re currently mulling over 2014’s vacation destination and we plan on staying in one or two places at the most.  Any suggestions?

  1. Sounds like a fun family trip!!! In 2014, I suggest that you take your family trip overseas & visit London & Paris or maybe Madrid & Barcelona or even head down to Puerto Rico & get a taste of the Caribbean ;)
